References Sheet Sample

Purpose: To bring to interviews as a leave-behind when you are asked for your references

Quick Tips for Writing a References Listing:

The document below is an example references listing in the format to be brought to interviews with you and left when asked for your references. Never send your references with your resume. Always wait until the interview. We recommend that you include at least six references who will be able to comment on various aspects of your career, your strengths, and your accomplishments. Make certain to always ask the people before including them on your references sheet! This is important. A good way to phrase the question is to say “Would you be willing to serve as one of my references, and if so, do you feel you would be able to give me a good reference?” Rather than just listing names and numbers, it is a good idea to include a few sentences indicating the relationship you have with the person and what he or she may be able to comment on.

This example references listing is just a sample to show the quality and style of our work.

Very good service!!! Nancy was very responsive and available to answer my questions. She also reached out to me in order to have a better understanding of my career experiences and what I wanted to highlight! This is my first professional resume and I am very happy with the final product. I think that it represents my accomplishments and highlights my strengths. I have already recommended you to a couple of my friends!!!

Thank you for your services and the excellent resume you produced as a result. There is no question in my mind that this distinctive resume provided me with far more opportunities to talk to recruiters and principals than I would have had otherwise. More than once I heard recruiters say "I pick out two resumes from over 1000 internet responses and you were one of them."

Bottom line I achieved exactly what I was looking for: in terms of position, location, and income AND I had choices in terms of multiple offers. It all started by getting someone to notice my resume in with a thousand others.

Hi Lisa, I just wanted to say Thank You for the wonderful job on my resume and cover letter! The difference I must say is night and day; it's really amazing:) I feel so much more confident distributing my resume now. Before, I was often hesitant to apply for more competitive jobs because I subconsciously didn't think my resume was up to "par", or worthy enough to distribute, especially to top tier jobs like Google, and other Fortune 500 jobs...Silicon Valley is known for its very competitive job market (and I must say it definitely lives up to this reputation) and before I felt that while I had the skills, experience, and drive to compete for a job here in the San Jose and San Francisco area, my resume did not allow me to show it. Now, with my new resume and cover letter, I feel so much more CONFIDENT that my resume will get me noticed in the more competitive jobs, which is exactly why I hired Distinctive Document's services! So, in this case, I did definitely get what I paid for :0) (This sounds so much like one of those accolades on your website lol but it's true!) I cannot thank you enough, and I cannot stop admiring my resume and cover letter...I love them that much!

J.M., San Jose, CA

Thank you so much! It really was a pleasure working with you and loved how seamless the process was from start to finish. I look forward to working with you and the team at Distinctive Career Services on future projects and will definitely recommend you to friends and family!
